Iran vs. Maldives - Full Highlights, 1st Leg [ WCQ - 2014 ]

Facebook: Site: Iran defeat chanceless Maldives http Written by Martin Reza Babry PFDC - TEHRAN, Iran scored a comfortable 4-0 win over a helpless Maldives in the first leg of AFC World Cup qualification round 2, but could have scored another dozen had they been more concentrated in front of goal. The Maldives held on to a good result with luck and permanent grass rolling and obviously will pose no threat in the return leg on in Male on Thursday. Iran, again starting in a 4-3-3 formation, took an early lead through Karim Ansarifard who tapped the ball in from close range after a Mohammad-Reza Khalatbari cross from the left. Carlos Queiroz’ men had a half dozen further excellent scoring opportunities still before the break, but were too sloppy in front of goal. Iran increased tempo and pressure in second half and the visitors soon got exhausted and were lucky not to suffer a thrashing like the legendary 0-17 in 1997. The homeside, meanwhile playing a 4-2-4, launched wave after wave of attacks on the Maldives goal and in several periods create chances in minute cycles. Ansarifard doubled the lead when he got his foot to an attempted clearance after a Hadi Aghily cross and the ball just crossed the line before a defender could hit the ball away (62′). In minute 68, skipper Ali Karimi scored Iran’s third, when he headed home a corner kick from the superb Khalatbari. Substitute striker Saeid Daghighi added a very much overdue fourth goal when he

Kaafu Atoll - Maldives Islands

Kaafu Atoll is an administrative division of the Maldives. It consists of Kaashidhoo Island, Gahaafaru Atoll, and Malé Atoll (which includes the North Malé Atoll and the South Malé Atoll). It also has a number of uninhabited islands. Malé, capital of the Maldives is naturally located within the North Malé Atoll, but it is not part of the Kaafu administrative division. NOTE: Haa Alifu, Haa Dhaalu, Shaviyani, Noonu, Raa, Baa, Kaafu, etc. are code letters assigned to the present administrative divisions of the Maldives. They are not the proper names of the natural atolls that make up these divisions. Some atolls are divided into two administrative divisions while other divisions are made up of two or more natural atolls. The order followed by the code letters is from North to South, beginning with the first letters of the Thaana alphabet used in Dhivehi. These code letters are not accurate from the geographical and cultural point of view. However, they have become popular among tourists and foreigners in the Maldives who find them easier to pronounce than the true atoll names in Dhivehi, (save a few exceptions, like Ari Atoll) ( source Wikipedia )
